From past files . I like this photo so I am posting it .
Probably with kill.
Dozens at this location.
This one had a purple blotch on its back and dark tips on the cerrata.
Two! About 1.5" across ("large" for local sea spiders!). Additional photos include highly photoshopped versions to better see their markings.
